Will tonight mark the last call at the Mars Bar?

That's what people keep asking us.

Short answer: We have no idea. June 30 was the date some reliable sources had mentioned earlier in the month; the same date that Joe's Locksmith next door and some of the tenants upstairs are moving out.

However! Two reliable sources have said that Hank has put in the weekend liquor order. So either tonight will be a helluva blow out, as one of the sources put it, or the bar will be open for what promises to be a lucrative holiday weekend.

So if you're thinking about going tonight for one last time, then go ahead and stick to those plans. Worst case is you'll have to go again in a week or two or so.

One thing we can say with some certainty: The bar stools are disappearing. One regular noted that people have already been taking them as souvenirs.

Just in case — dibs on the toilet seat!

Bahah! New birthday present idea, Marty. I'll get it for you. Should I wrap it or just put a bow on it? haha!

@Marty - sounds like you've got a new art project in the works!

My gut says today is not the last day, but I'm swinging by anyway. If they're open this weekend, that will be even better.

@Lindsay: Ha! That would be the greatest present ever! And a bow would be great, and don't worry about the adhesive on the bow, I think anything will stick to that seat!

Lindsay said...

@Marty: Hahha! Truly! That or the bow would disintegrate

@Goggla: Fingers crossed!
